Céline Dion is celebrating the kickoff to her world tour today by releasing three new songs from her upcoming album, Courage, out Nov. 15. 

"Lying Down" is a galvanizing anthem that finds Dion teaming up with David Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort and Sia, who co-wrote and sings backup on the track. "Whatever her journey was, I feel her pain and her passion, and I connect with her music tremendously," Dion said of Sia, at a Facebook live Q&A back in April.  

"Imperfections" is a more uptempo track produced by Los Angeles DJ DallasK, and the album's title track, a classic piano ballad, was written by Stephan Moccio, Erik Alcock and Liz Rodrigues. 

Courage will be Dion's first English-language album in six years, and her first full-length release since 2016's Encore un soir

Dion will start her Courage world tour tonight with a two-night stop in Québec City, followed by shows in other Canadian cities including Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
